  • Tony and Johnny Sack aspire to have Carmine whacked, but Tony backs out, making Johnny angry and vengeful. Tony and Carmela have an extremely harsh split-up, while Tony tries to buy a beach home for the family.

    One of the ten best episodes of The Sopranos of all time! The tense situation of Tony and Johnny Sack setting up Carmine to get whacked and Tony deciding not to go through with it was excellently played. When Tony refuses Johnny Sack swears vengeance on Tony. A powerful confrontation, but not nearly as powerful as the split-up of Tony and Carmela. The scenes between Tony and Carmela are masterfully acted and ingeniously written. For this episode alone, both James Gandolfini and Edie Falco should receive Emmy awards. Their scenes of anguish and hurt are so undeniably brilliant. Another very interesting plot point, was the situation between Tony and the owner of the “Whitecaps” beach house. Bruce Altman does an exquisite job as a cut-throat attorney going against someone like Tony Soprano. The ending is admirable, because it ends with two non-main guest-star characters talking about something that will have no effect on the season to come. I was biting my nails waiting for the hit on Carmine to go down, but it never did. Although, not as good as this season’s episode “Whoever Did This’ which takes the spot as my # 10 favorite episode of The Sopranos ever made, “Whitecaps” will
    definitely bring home the awards and recognition for David Chase. Overall Grade: A+

    Ranking in season: # 2 / 13
    Ranking in series: # 8 / 65
